• Title: The Energetic Trade-offs Underpinning Foraging Across a Seascape for a Model Reef Fish
  • Principal Investigator: Alastair Harborne
  • Funding Source: Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation
  • Timeline: Ongoing

Institute scientists are studying how marine reserves can alter ecological processes and affect trophic cascades. We are also using marine reserves and other management tools to protect reefs of the future that may function differently because of low coral cover and complexity, as well as designing marine reserve networks for future changes of reef condition and larval connectivity.

Dive into this study's article published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B to explore how marine reserves shape seascapes on a scale visible from space.
